  1. I am wondering what everyone's thoughts are on using wood appearing vinyl on a '49 Town & Country. The car had vinyl looking wood frames by the real stuff. I can go either way on restoring it. I have seen photos of these cars done either way and there are merits to either approach. First of all the curves in the door sheet metal would lead anyone who has ever worked with wood to know it isn't the real thing. But if it is wood shouldn't it all be wood?! Tin Woodie Chevy's don't do it for me. Everyone is welcome to post their thoughts. Value versus aesthetics and of course Patina are all factors. Thanks
  2. Hello everyone, Alex here from Warrior Wagons. I would like to share a build I finished this year. Here is the link to it from You Tube! Enjoy! http://youtu.be/BOwBkqpRbks
  3. We are looking to sell our 1930 Model A Woody. This vehicle has been in our dealership for several years and has been a a few parades. It has been over a year since we last cranked it and is sitting on our showroom floor to our dealership. If you are looking for a restoration project, then this might be the one for you. We are asking $13,500 for it, but accepting reasonable offers. Sabine River Ford 1601 Green Ave, Orange, TX 77630 409-883-3581
  4. Hello Everyone: It's Rich here again, and I'm still trying to track down by father's old '55 Country Squire. Evidently, no one on here has it! Anyway, I was looking around on the internet, and came across an organization out in California called "Woodies on the Warf." They have a big show every year (June). Has anyone been? What do you think? Is it mostly for those who actually own a Woodie, or can those just with a general interest in them have any fun? Is it worth making a trip to California to see it? Thanks!
  5. I have a 41 Oldsmobile Woodie Wagon, which is largely original. I purchased the vehicle about eight (8) years ago from a family going through a rough spot in life. The patriarch of the family had changed the factory engine for a late 70's, early 80's Oldsmobile 455. My understanding is that the choice to change the engine, was largely due to the lack of resources at the time (lack of the internet, or knowing where to find parts). Nevertheless, I'm not sure what the present value of the vehicle actually is, as I haven't seen another 41 recently sell? Can anyone assist in the assessment of pricing, or point me in the proper direction - website, publication, or otherwise?. Excluding the engine, the vehicle is largely original - wood, interior, included. My understanding is that there are maybe three (3) to six (6) of these 41's left? At any rate, I do have the original inline six, as well as any part that was initially taken off the vehicle. Furthermore, the car does run and drive; although, it has been a while. It presently resides in climate controlled garage. Any thoughts, or questions - let me know.
  6. Not wishing to cross post; however, I just realized that there is a forum for the National Woodie Club... Nevertheless, the link to my original post is below and I copied my post to save you a click. http://forums.aaca.org/f136/1941-oldsmobile-woodie-wagon-help-pricing-369582.html I have a 41 Oldsmobile Woodie Wagon, which is largely original.

  7. A beauty right? It has been reliable as long as I have had it and usually starts right up. Now for some reason at this point I am unable to get it to start. Between the time it worked and stopped starting I had changed nothing. It had sat for a couple months due to business travel and it being winter. I have tried to troubleshoot it with my limited car knowledge: It has fresh gas, and new spark plugs now. I have checked for loose connections in the distributor wires and did not seem to find any. I have tested and it looks like all 8 cylinders are getting spark. Battery is on a charger when I try to crank it. It seems as if the carburetor is getting good gas flow. The carburetor itself is in pristine new condition and everything moves freely. At this point I am not sure what to do. Obviously the more things I take apart the more things that might contribute to it not working..so I am stopping for now until I get help. Attached is a video showing 50 seconds of me trying to get it to start. Notice at the end in the last 10 seconds it sputters and the carburetor sends up a puff of white smoke. That is the most action I get. If any of you professionals need any additional data, photos or vids please let me know how I can make this easier to troubleshoot. Also I am certainly not too proud to have someone come out and show me how to work on and maintain old cars. If you know of anyone who is a mechanic in the Philadelphia area and has experience with cars from 1945-1970, i would be happy to pay them for their time if they are looking for some side work.

  9. what we have here is a great find. its from what i can tell off a 1943 to 1948 buick hood. it really is in great shape as far as a 64 year old hood that has never been touched goes. the only rust is on the corners closets to the windshield, but that is it and very minimal. this is a great buy for the right guy. the only part thats missing it the main emblem. please feel free to call me if you are serious (not to just ask question) (541)974-4057 ask for Alex or email westfootball55@aol.com asking $500 or best offer (open to any offer but dont try to low ball me) For some reason I cant get pictures to post right now but i will try again soon.
  10. WTB: 1953 Buick Roadmaster Estate Wagon Tail Gate Glass Wanted. Thank you for any assistance. Rob
  11. Believed to be the last unrestored 1940 Buick Woody, and one of 12 or 13 total left in existence. Buick only used Biehl Body Co. in Redding, PA for one year - 1940. After 1940, Buick used a cheaper body maker, and it is widely acknowledged that the woodwork, and therefore the cars, were no longer as intricate or attractive. This car is believed to be complete (with backseat) and includes some spares such as a new wiring loom, extra grill, bumper, bumperettes, various phenolic parts and a "period" portable radio. This particular car was purchased new by Warner Bros. Studios in Hollywood, CA - then traded at Howard Buick in 1950 and subsequently purchased by Mr. John Thomson, of Los Angeles. We believe Mr. Thomson was a professional photographer who took the famous picture of the first atomic bomb detonation at Bikini Atoll. The car was sold from his estate after Mr. Thomson's passing in 1985 (copy of the obituary may be available). More info from the previous owner (#3): "Re: 1940 Buick Estate Wagon, model '59' bearing 1956 CA lic plate "JPM575" with 1961 reg tags chassis #: 13837256 engine #: 54033740 Biehl Body Co. ID plate: body # 486 / trim # 1 / paint # 544 (original paint color - maroon, interior trim - dark red leather and wool carpeting) (body #486, out of a total of 496 for domestic sales and 5 for export) This car was sold new in the fall of 1940 by Howard Buick in Los Angeles. NOTE: Charles Howard was the west coast Buick distributor and the owner of 'Seabiscuit' In 1950 my father's friend John Thomson bought this car from Howard when it was traded in by the original owner, Warner Bros studios. He drove it until 1961, which was the last year that it was registered. In 1985 I purchased the car from Mr. Thomson's widow and at that time checked out all the mechanicals, got the engine started and drove it around the block a couple times. I then parked it in my garage where it has sat for the last 22 years awaiting a restoration project that unfortunately never came to pass... The engine and drivetrain are original and [believed to be] functional. The electrical wiring has deteriorated. A new full wire loom with correct color coded fabric wire is included. It has not yet been installed. All lamps, lenses, and trim pieces are present and intact. The car has the original front seat as well as the removable rear seat and the optional rear fender skirts. There is an extra two piece grill as well as a bumper and bumper over-rider, all rechromed and wrapped up. All the body sheet metal is solid with no rust-out as this car has always been in Los Angeles and has not been subjected to road salt or harsh winters. The wooden body is northern Ash, while the inset plywood panels are covered in mahogany veneer. With the exception of the tailgate, liftgate and adjacent overhead and vertical rear corner posts which have all suffered deterioration from weathering and dryrot, all of the rest of the body woodwork is in place and intact. All four doors open and close, but their joints are loose and fragile. I must stress that although much of the wood framing might appear to be refinishable and restorable, that wouild not be a wise course to follow. In order to do a proper restoration and ensure the strength and integrity of the body, ALL of the woodwork should be disassembled and used only as patterns for the fabrication of a new body..." ** All information contained herein is believed to be true and correct, but not guaranteed. Please supplement this information with your own research. The car is currently in running condition. It starts and idles more smoothly and quietly than our 2007 Chevy Tahoe. Truly a remarkable car, we hate to let the Buick go. Hemmings ad link: Hemmings Motor News: Buick Estate Wagon for sale Anamera link: 1940 Buick Estate Wagon Woody (Pre-War) for sale: Anamera
  12. Hey all I'm just trying to gather information and/or interest in my Model A Woody Station Wagon. Ford has officially recognized it as the very first "Woody Wagon" made. Of the 1,715,000 Ford Model A's produced in 1929, only 4,954 were Station Wagons. I know this is a rare model and am looking to post it for sale in the near future but I was hoping to gain some feedback by posting here. I have put a picture of it as my default and I have more pictures if anyone is interested in seeing them contact me. Thank You
